SOL #13 Haiku Summary

This March writing challenge is organized by Two Writing Teachers

Another last minute one.  I'm settling for haiku.

"Spring forward," they say
But I trip over that hour
and fall on my face.

"Too much read-aloud"
says my boss, then I drown him
in Krashen's research.

"Buy one, get one free"
but those pizzas cost more than
we'd spend sans coupon.

"Please charge my phone, Mom,"
says the kid who's finally
earned the damn thing back.

"Red wine and chocolate,
a book, roaring fire." He knows
what would be perfect.

Snippets of my day based on things people told me.  The almighty "they," my principal, the fancy pizza place I wasted money on, my son, and my husband.


  1. Ooooh, interesting! I love the idea behind this slice - collecting all day's soundbites into one place. And that you made it poetic. Well done!

  2. I laughed at the “Charge My Phone” one. Also, fancy pizza is totally worth spending money on. Pizza is life.

  3. Your first one is my favorite! Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way about the time change!
